“Bergman Island” (Criterion)

Mia Hansen-Løve has been earning raves for her latest drama, “One Fine Morning,” but I prefer this 2021 puzzle box of a film, one that fascinatingly unpacks creative inspiration. In this movie, Chris (the consistently fantastic Vicky Krieps) and Tony Sanders (Tim Roth) travel to the infamous island of Faro, where Ingmar Bergman worked, lived, and set some of his films. Tony admires Bergman, but Chris is less infatuated with the filmmaking icon, partially because of his treatment of women. She explores the island while working on a screenplay about a woman (Mia Wasikowska, giving one of the best performances of her career) who travels to the island for a wedding and meets a man (Anders Danielsen Lie). The Criterion edition of this character-driven drama includes new interviews with both the director and star, along with a short film shot during the production by Gabe Klinger (“Porto”).

“Bones and All”

Luca Guadagnino, the director of “Call Me by Your Name” and “Suspiria,” delivered one of his most divisive films in this story of young cannibals in love. Using the practice of eating human flesh as an allegorical jumping-off point for outsiders, “Bones and All” is the tale of Maren Yearly (the excellent Taylor Russell), who flees society when her father can no longer deal with the fact that she’s a cannibal. On the road, she meets two men: the bizarrely unsettling Sully (Mark Rylance, going all-in) and the supportive Lee (Timothee Chalamet). What unfolds is a daring coming-of-age story that will be rewatched and reappraised far more than many of the most acclaimed films of 2022.
